Two of our writers have recently posted blog postings concerning their writing careers. John Pistelli looks back at his writing of The Ecstasy of Michaela two years later. Also, Albert Davenport discusses the enduring fascination with the apocalypse and how that influenced his novel Revelation 11.
Each work that an author writes gives readers a snapshot of the author's style and worldview. Unless the reader follows the author's work, that view may harden into an obsolete, distorted vision of his or her work. John Pistelli's post shows how just two years in an author's life can alter his perceptions and writing style. Returning to a writer can afford the reader a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the writer and his work.
The popularity of HBO's The Leftovers set Albert Davenport thinking about human fascination with the apocalypse. His post tells a little about how his musings on the "end of days" provided his upcoming novel, Revelation 11's, essential conflict.
We invite you to enjoy our writers' blogs and their works. The Ecstasy of Michaela is available on the Valhalla Press website and Revelation 11 is currently being marketed by Dean Krystek at the Wordlink Literary Agency. Fans are encouraged to 'Like' the Revelation 11 Facebook page.
